Rustic Snowflake for Freshly Made Sketches

It has been awhile since I participated in a sketch challenge. I always enjoy them because they push me out of my comfort zone.

Last week I was playing around with embossing powders and created this rustic snowflake. It has been on my desk waiting for me to do something creative.

Then this Freshly Made Sketches #364 created by Kim came along and rescued my snowflake.

Here is the sketch:

 

Here is my card:

 

I heat embossed this snowflake with gold, silver and copper. I loved the way it came out so rustic and sort of “country.”

I do have a few more Snowflake Showcase cards to share this week… remember these products will disappear November 30.

I also have a few more Holiday Inspiration Newsletters to share. Make sure you sign up for my newsletter to receive free holiday tutorials.

Thanks for stopping by today.

I always enjoy hearing from you! Please leave me your questions or comments about the project for today.

Happy Stamping!

Snow is Glistening Cards #simplestamping

Thanksgiving Eve and we are gearing up for the big day. Thank goodness for #simplestamping. I have two more snowflake cards to share today. I am in love with this Snowflake Showcase Bundle. If you like it as much as I do then you need to order before the end of November.

Purple can be a Christmas color.

This card is created with a Stampin’ Up! note card. These cut & scored note cards are a huge time saver.

I stamped this card using Gorgeous Grape and Highland Heather. A few dots of Powder Pink added interest on the background. I layered the punched sentiment with silver glimmer paper and added silver thread for dimension. Lots of bling adds the finishing touch.

I almost didn’t share this card because unfortunately the Designer Series Paper is sold out. But it is so pretty, and I had to share.

We have several new colors this year and Merry Merlot is one of the new Neutral colors. It goes with everything! Have you tried it yet?

#Simple stamping is a great solution for you if you have procrastinated on your holiday cards.

Happy Thanksgiving!

#simplestamping Snowflake Style

Welcome to another Snowflake day. Last week 6000+ Stamping Up!® Demonstrators gathered in Orlando for one big party – OnStage.  OnStage is where demonstrators meet up with fellow stampers, learn new techniques, gain business information and have lots of fun.

Part of the focus at OnStage was reaching out to beginning stampers. Do you remember when you were a beginner? How about the first time you put ink to paper and a beautiful image appeared? It is almost magical.

Here is my magical beginner card for today. It is simple, yet  beautiful.

Several things make this card simple.

  • The Silver Foil edged card base is lovely. No layering needed. It even has a matching silver edged envelope.
  • Using the Stamparatus to stamp the Snowflake Tree was a breeze. Because the Stamparatus has two plates I could stamp the tree and then stamp the tree trunk. Flip, stamp, flip, stamp, done.
  • Stamp the Joy sentiment and punch with a circle punch. Add to card front with dimenstionals.
  • Stamp inside sentiment using the Stamparatus.
  • Add a few rhinestones as Christmas decorations.
  • #simplestamping completed in about 5 minutes.

A reminder: The Snowflake Showcase stamps and Thinlits will disappear November 30. You will want to order them today, so you can make beautiful Christmas cards.

Stop back tomorrow for more Snowflake inspiration.

I always enjoy hearing from you! Please leave me your questions or comments about the project for today.

Happy Stamping!
